If you are looking for a durable outdoor solution to your potted plant, consider our lightweight cement planter options. Dressed to look like cement, they are made from a resin polymer material. Resin is a composite blend of polymer similar to plastic, but with the durability of true cement. It is composed of an inner core, followed by a protective layer of thick polyurethane, and a textured outer shell. These components all come from recycled materials, so you can count on these planters as an eco friendly option for your home or garden.
Resin planters are durable, resilient, and surprisingly lightweight. Unlike regular planters, resin planters will not swell and contract with the seasons. When temperatures fluctuate, you can count on these planters to retain their shape without cracks or compromises that would cause other planters to break down.You can also count on these planters to not corrode or lose their color in the rain, snow or sun. Their lightweight design and durability allows for easy moving, and the ability to transfer plants with the changing seasons – they are otherwise completely maintenance free.

If you are looking for a natural outdoor look, look no further than our selection of cedar wood planters. These outdoor planters are 100% white cedar and are highly durable. Surprisingly, our cedar material options are highly resilient, and quite capable of withstanding the elements. Cedar is a naturally durable wood. The tree itself is resistant to rotting and is not susceptible to insects, making it an excellent material to build planters with. Cedar is also capable of absorbing moisture from the soil inside, so it is an ideal choice for a healthy, natural looking garden. This material provides great versatility and will combine and complement other components in your garden like seating and trellises easily.
Cedar is considered an eco-friendly choice. Cedar wood is a fast growing resource, and produces little waste when it is harvested. Once it is harvested, the entire tree can be used including its roots and its bark.
Choose from our square shaped or rectangle shaped cedar wood planters. Depending on your design and florals in mind, you will need more area to plant. Cedar is a great material to raise plants in for longevity and protection from the sun. Upon your request, we also offer custom sizes. Browse our selection of cedar wooden planters below.

What Makes Up a Glaze?
Glazes are a form of glass specially designed to adhere to pots and other ceramic surfaces. When molten, this specialized glass is stiffer than glass that is poured or blown is This is critical, because otherwise when brought up to temperature in the kiln, the glaze will spill off the vertical surfaces of the pots.
Colors In Glaze
Glazes come in a wide variety of colors, originating from minerals and inorganic compounds. Iron oxides, cobalt oxide, chromium oxide, copper oxide, and copper carbonate are the most widely used colorants.
The firing process may also affect the color of a glaze. If there is plenty of oxygen in the atmosphere in the kiln it is considered an oxidation fire. If there is very little oxygen in the atmosphere, this is called a reduction shot. The level of oxygen in the kiln will cause a dramatic difference in the color of a glaze. For example, if fired in an oxidation atmosphere, a simple glaze using copper carbonate to color it would be turquoise or bright red if fired in a reduced atmosphere
Glazes vary from absolute clarity to total opaqueness. Most opaque or partly opaque glazes derive their influence from either tiny particles or bubbles of compressed air retained in the glaze. Often white glazes are translucent rather than a true colorant due to opacity.
In an otherwise clear glaze, different minerals can cause opacity, but other characteristics such as surface and crystal development can also be achieved. Many of these minerals are known as glaze modifications.
